A NSW free from poverty and inequality

"I'm only 15 and already I know my choices will be ruled by me being a woman" - A New Year for Young Women

This week NCOSS brought together young women from around the State to talk women and girls’ economic empowerment across their life cycle.

We heard from inspirational and impressive young women who have great insight into the key concerns for young women and a vision and the solutions for their own economic empowerment.

They want to see a community where young women are empowered, comfortable, knowledgeable, have the support of both their families and the system and have real choices. The key steps to getting there were identified as: better financial literacy programs, secure housing, breaking down stereotypes, equal opportunities and treatment in the workplace and addressing racism and disability discrimination.
